Heres a greyhound/deerhound(first x) cross collie/greyhound(first x) the photos in Bill Dohertys book its his mates dog looks mighty fine to me and a decent dog by all acount

A few deerhound greyhound collie greyhounds I've had over the years. All very capable catch dogs, the big dog in the top pic would take teeth no problem and work round the hole all day long. A litter

Morton is alway praising this x.... I'd personally want a drop of wheaton or bull instead of the collie if it was me👍

They are dying out, it’s a shame that there’s not many people using them for the job they were bred for, to be honest there’s not a lot of people flat out at that job at all, a lot catch the odd bit here and there but not many people require a proper deer dog

Absolutely nothing in the right uns.They became popular when lurchers were at their zenith and the folk were about that actually knew how to fully utilise a decent lurcher.Its a breed now that is lost on the majority of the present generation.There is not the same standard of ownership now and the few decent souls will be hard pressed to source a decent lurcher of this type.The more popular breeds of lurchers bred now suit another time and generation.There are still lurcher to lurcher bred pups available with generations of graft behind them,id look for one of those and not get to hung up on wanting a specific type,source something that's bred to suit your hunting lifestyle,don,t follow fashion,stay away from the turds.

Have you ever thought that maybe because of the way this generation is forced to hunt , that the use of the Subaru’s etc exposed the fact that deerhound greyhounds are f***ing shite in reality when exposed to hard regular work ? 
 

just a thought ?

Deerhounds were never deer killers though in the first place

Some deerhound hybrids have been used for that job though, to what extent I don’t really know I’ve seen a couple they were ok but didn’t make me want to own one, wouldn’t mind a bit of deer/grey in a line of saluki lurchers though, just finding a decent one. I’d rather have a deer/grey than some of the crosses I’ve heard people describe as good deer dogs though

Worst thing in the world an injury prone dog tbh, had them myself doesn’t matter how good they run it they’re laid up regularly they’re better off in a pet home

'confused' = I'd say folk "Subaru" because they want to and they aren't going to choose a deer X grey, the same as they aren't going to choose lots of other crosses..

 

Most folk that worked and bred DG/CG's and deerhound lurchers simply aren't on the scene anymore

You're correct max, there are still some very good deer/greys and deer/collie/greys about. And like you say, their owners don't bother with the internet

I know lads who have had them for years and never bred a pup off them.When I asked why don’t you breed when you need another off ya own stuff there answer was (I can’t be done with village idiots)coming to my door and it’s cheaper to buy a pup than need a litter.And it’s right when you look at all the hassle then the muppets on the phone who some or most haven’t got a clue about the breed.But now they are struggling as a lot of the old lads can’t be bothered to breed a little now and chew on with getting them up because of the same reason.

Yeah similar thing I've found, plus the fact that a lot of the people that favour these types of lurcher, are now getting a bit past it lol, myself included 👍

Surely if their dogs were of such a high standard, they’d breed them and not buy in. If someone’s letting their own bitch lie in the kennel, and buying a pup from someone else I’d reckon the bitch can’t be all shes made out to be.
